Jaeger-LeCoultre AMVOX7 Chronograph

The seventh timepiece in the collaboration between Jaeger-LeCoultre and Aston Martin has resulted in a sports watch with a twist: a chronograph with a vertical trigger mechanism under the dial so that pushing on the sapphire crystal in just the right places will start, stop and reset the timepiece.

The desired chronograph function can be locked by a slide on the side of the case so that timing intervals aren’t accidentally started or stopped. Additionally, the 65-hour power reserve of the automatic movement is shown in a unique radial display that adds to the feeling of speed.

In an age of endless tie-ins that can seem gimmicky to say the least, the Jaeger-LeCoultre collaboration with Aston Martin is an authentic one with the Amvox 7 containing design elements that echo the Aston Martin Vanquish in the best possible way. Of course with a price tag $26,000, we should expect no less.
